Phelisters Opiyo: University Graduate Ends Up Working as a Cleaner Despite Years of Study

Phelisters Opiyo’s heartfelt story on social media resonates deeply with many, reflecting the struggles and hopes of countless individuals. She shared:

“After graduating on May 27, 2022, I didn’t know what life held for me. I wished to get a good job and finish my mum’s house in the village, help mum as much as I can, live a comfortable life, and be a good mum. I knew opportunities would arise soon. I believed God was watching and wouldn’t allow ‘nyathi kich’ to suffer. You know, you never know what life is about to offer you until you receive what it offered.

After giving birth, eeeishhhhh life. I don’t know how it happened, but I ended up being diagnosed with high blood pressure. Yes, high blood pressure—story for another day. Actually, I knew this when I had gone for family planning options two months after Emsley. I was ready to go back to the field then, and they told me I couldn’t use any FP apart from a coil. They even prescribed me drugs for pressure, which I never used. There was no way I was going to go that route; once you start using pressure medication, that’s it.

My mum was more stressed than me, and she insisted I don’t use the drugs. A year after I gave birth, an opportunity arose. Cleaning staff was needed somewhere. You should have seen how fast I took the chance. I read somewhere that only those suffering will wake up from that comfortable bed. Until you taste the bitter taste of life, you will not judge a job, hehe.”
